Neanderthal Racism Continues
October 11, 2017 | David F. Coppedge
The evidence shows that Neanderthals were fully human, having shared genetic information with us. Why, then, do Darwin Supremacists continue to treat them as other than human?
One clear case (among many) where paleoanthropologists have been totally wrong has been in the classification of Neanderthals as a separate species, Homo neanderthalensis. As pointed out before, this amounts to a case of historical racism. For years, there have been growing signs that these ancient humans were just as intelligent as modern humans. The clincher in the last few years, though, is that we all have Neanderthal genes in us. Clearly, any individual capable of interbreeding and carrying on fertile offspring over generations counts as a member of the same species.

Neanderthals, the superhumans who were the progenitors of Vikings and Celts, should be respected.
The low percentage of Neanderthal genes in the modern population likely reflects the very low Neanderthal population relative to that of the newcomers. Interbreeding indicates same species. The whole range of Chihuahuas to Wolves represents one species. The “coyotes” I see where I work range from little fellows of maybe 25 pounds to a critter that is easily 80 pounds or more. In the East at least, there seems to be no fine between wolves and coyotes and coyotes have been making puppies with domestic dogs for a long time.
I read something recently which suggested that Neanderthals may not have practiced the same mating ritual exclusion of family members that their modern human counterparts did, and that may have led to their demise.
Darwin was a racist.
Please read or view Danny Vendramini’s “Neanderthal’s Predation Theory.”
The coyotes in the East are part red wolf. That’s why they are so large. I have seen 50-70 pound coyotes in my neighborhood.
Yep, I mean, the alternate title for “Origin of the Species” is “The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life”.
In North Florida, at least, the mix is from red wolf,through coyotes through domestic dogs. It is obvious if one sees more than a couple of them in the almost-wild as around the power plant where I am a security guard, mostly at night when the canines venture onto the grounds to harass the deer that are all over the place. I have seen one that looked like classic coyote of maybe 45 pounds but with a mottled coat and ears that did not stand erect in the company of one that would be termed a wolf if a hunter saw it.
It sure does and groups like BLM insist on keeping it going.
Seems to me that a great many blacks do not want to let racism die.
Black Americans may have Neanderthal ancestry if any of their ancestors came from Europe or were in the Americas before 1492.
23andMe will tell you if you have any Neanderthal ancestry if you take their DNA test.
I’m in S.E. TN near the Great Smoky Mountains, Cherokee National Forest, and other large game areas. Mostly the coyotes don’t bother much as long as they can find small game but they are scary big and brave. They are also more aggressive than pure coyote. Sometimes when they hunt they even howl like a wolf instead of yipping like a coyote. It’s kind of a mix.
My neighbor has a critter cam on her porch and they come up on that. At first she thought they were reddish colored German Shepherd’s and then realized they were Coy/Wolves. That’s what I call them.
I have three large dogs in a fenced yard outside and the coyotes come close but don’t bother them. All of my dogs are spayed and neutered so there isn’t much for them here. :-) I never leave my small house dogs outside after dark though, even inside the fence.
Other than bashing alleged "Darwin Supremacists" (??) it's not at all clear what this article is trying to say.
The real issue is: where exactly, by definition, do we draw the lines separating different races (breeds/varieties) of the same sub-species, or different sub-species of the same species, or different species of the same biological genus, or different genera of the same biological family, etc.
Where we draw such lines matters a lot in saying whether populations like Neanderthals were a different race/breed of humans, homo sapiens-sapiens, or a different sub-species, homo-sapiens-Neanderthal of the human species, or a whole different species, homo-Neanderthal, of the homo genus.
The fact is that Neanderthals were not as closely related to us as we are to each other -- even the most distantly separated humans are more closely related to each other than to any Neanderthals.
That makes Neanderthals more than just another "race" (breed) of humans, they must be at least a sub-species and since they interbred with our ancestors, they cannot be more separated than a different species.
Where things stood until recent years: Neanderthals were considered at least a separate species, if not entirely different genus.
But since the DNA evidence has weighed in, they are now classified as only a different sub-species within humans: Homo sapiens neanderthalensis.
But how such changes justify the article's verbal assaults on "Darwin Supremacists" escapes me.
